Bob Heads With Cotton Jones.
You probably have a lot of things going on this weekend. We all do. Maybe, even, some of those things are super important.
But you don't want to miss all the fun things that only happen once around town, right? There will, after all, only ever be one release party for that cassette mix you were thinking about getting, and who knows if that band you like will even still be together after their show this weekend.
Everything is fleeting, so make time in between items on your busy schedule — or just go ahead and cancel the things that weren't really that high of a priority — so you can do bigger and better things.
